The popular StrEATside Market is set to relaunch on April 10, with some exciting new additions.

Located at The MET within the new Maroochydore CBD, the weekly event opened to large crowds in August last year before taking a summer break in December.

With new opening hours of 3pm until 9pm, StrEATside is expected to once again become one of the best ways to spend a relaxing afternoon on the Coast.

StrEATside operator Andrew Sisley said steps had been taken to reduce the market’s environmental footprint by providing beverages from a range of companies with strong sustainability credentials, while not compromising on taste.

Entry will continue to be free most weekends. \

“Our beverage range includes wine from Unico Zelo and Harvest, gin from Natural Distilling Co and Applewood Distillery, and craft beer by Brewdog, which are certified B Corporations meaning they meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance,” he said.

“The market will also feature Shoppe Lightly, a new pop-up ethical store which will stock a carefully selected range of vegan and environmentally or socially responsible goods including clothing, skincare and homewares.

Live music will be an important part of the market.

“Live music will continue to be an integral part of the day, and for our first weekend we are delighted to bring back local crowd favourite Hayden Hack as well as popular young Brisbane based indie performer Hazel Mei.”

Entry will continue to be free most weekends and StrEATside will continue to provide umbrellas, picnic rugs and lawn games, while delicious street food can be purchased from a selection of local and visiting food trucks.

Guests are encouraged to check Facebook or Instagram page @streatsidemarket prior to attending the event for any changes in opening hours due to weather, or changes to free entry due to special ticketed events.
